I ordered a bowl of soup and a fish sandwich, which comes with fries. What I got was a fish sandwich, no fries and the tiniest little cup of soup I've seen in a long time. Egg cup tiny. Thanks a bunch. If you don't order the "special" (all you care to eat spaghetti the day we stopped) which is... More

I can't believe that I'm writing a review about a truck stop cafe, but it was that good! We were heading up to BC and stopped for breakfast on our way through.

We stopped here on July 4th. Maybe it was because of the holiday but they were out of some meal items. Staff were not all that friendly. We will eat somewhere else if we are passing through again.

Just an average truck stop Cafe. I had a hamburger steak for breakfast, the portion was very generous, the taste was rather bland. The price was in line with other area stops. The service was prompt and with a smile.

On our way back up to our home in Canada we stopped off at the café. Great service with friendly staff as well as good food for the price. We'll stop here again.
